In the work In Between the phrases being written on the screen describe the ‘writer’, a torture machine that ‘engraves’ on the body of the condemned the law they have broken in Kafka’s ” Penal Colony” inventing a kind of ‘riddle’.
Between two chests
A wheel with teeth
Two needles for the feet
For the head only one
The law wraps the body like a belt
The work “In between” negotiates the notion of punishment through writing and drawing. It investigates the point where the act of writing becomes drawing and vice versa.
The hands that appear on the four sides of the screen write towards both directions . The markers look like needles that weave, embroider, write, with quick movements as if they are executing a program.
As the words become a drawing through an exhaustive repetition, the drawing becomes the framework of a field where the viewer is invited to project his own images. it becomes the frame of an imaginary artwork.
The act of writing, traditionally iconoclastic recorded by the camera lens, is annuled and restored to the image.
